    I like Chris's projection. I think the coaches are a little distracted by their own preseason when they do these polls, and mostly just go by last season. UCLA is STACKED with talent this year. I think, as a bonus, everyone on their roster this season is actually a soccer player!

    I like Chris's projections, too. However, last year, when comparing the pre-season projections for where all teams would fit within their conferences to where teams actually ended up, the coaches' projections were slightly better than Chris's. The coaches' projections, on average, were within 2.03 positions of actual finishes. Chris's were within 2.20 positions. Chris was significantly better, however, at projecting the conference Automatic Qualifiers for the NCAA Tournament (AQs being the 28 teams that win their conference tournaments, plus the regular season champs for the 3 conferences that don't have conference tournaments), getting 16 correct as compared to 11 for the coaches. On the other hand, the coaches were slightly better at picking the conference regular season champs with 11 as compared to Chris's 10.

    So, the coaches actually did reasonably well, and better than I expected.
